The SDN-enabled MX240 Universal Routing Platform offers high performance, scale, and investment protection for a wide variety of service provider and enterprise applications. Those include business and residential broadband services and high-volume data center internetworking.
At just five rack units (5 U), the MX240 is a compact, modular platform offering up to 3 Tbps of system capacity with the MPC10E line card, ideal for space-constrained environments. It concurrently supports high-density 10GbE, 40GbE, 100GbE, and 400GbE interfaces, as well as legacy SONET/SDH, ATM, and PDH connectivity. The MX240 also supports Flexible Ethernet (FlexE), sophisticated timing capabilities, Junos fusion technology, and Juniper’s Virtual Chassis technology, which help streamline network design and operation.
The high-performance MX240 is packed with highly scalable routing, switching, security, and service features that enable revenue-generating applications, network consolidation, and service convergence. Key features include support for a wide range of Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services and advanced broadband network gateway functions, along with integrated routing, switching, and security services.
Powered by Junos OS and the programmable Juniper Penta silicon, the MX240 is deployed in mission- critical service provider and enterprise networks worldwide. It helps network operators digitally transform their networks—and their businesses—to react quickly in rapidly changing market conditions.
Scales through 3 Tbps, with support for 6 400GbE interfaces and 30 100GbE interfaces, to provide long-term investment protection.
Seamless integration with standards-based SDN controllers such as the Contrail Cloud Platform makes the MX240 an ideal anchor point for service chains that include physical and virtual elements.
Excellent ratio of size to capacity and density brings new efficiency to a variety of applications.
Integrates a wide set of services—including carrier-grade NAT (CGNAT), stateful firewall, and deep packet inspection—to address the widest range of applications as well as efficient network and service consolidation.
Powered by best-in-class Juniper Penta silicon, the MX240 has embedded MACsec and IPsec encryption with no sacrifice in performance.
Threat Intelligence at the Edge
SecIntel, Juniper’s security intelligence feed, helps you identify and block malicious traffic through policies that you configure on the MX router to cover command-and-control (C&C) servers as well as custom whitelists and blacklists.
